Oklahoma Primary 2012 Results MAP (REAL-TIME DATA)

Here are the results for the 2012 Oklahoma Republican primary.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) led going into the Sooner state's GOP contest, with a recent poll from American Research Group giving him 37 percent of the vote. Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House, followed in second and third places, with 26 percent and 22 percent of the vote, respectively. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) was polled at nine percent.


Santorum highlighted the importance of the Oklahoma contest, along with those in Ohio and Tennessee, in a radio interview last week, saying that "obviously we need to do well" to demonstrate that he can be a viable candidate in future contests, the Associated Press reported.

John McCain won the state in 2008, and Romney, the current GOP frontrunner, finished third with just under 25 percent of the vote, according to The New York Times. Paul finished fourth in 2008, garnering just 3.3 percent of the vote.

Oklahoma has 43 delegates, but only 40 will be determined by the primary. The three remaining delegates are party officials who are not bound to a specific candidate.
